hurry up summer!


“spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.”

argo pond at argo park, ann arbor, michigan, usa – summer 2017




(yet another underpaid re-enactor)

when at the salon recently

my stylist was combing out my hair and asked:

“why do you have glitter in your hair?”

now, there are many possible scenarios

some more accepted than others

but i suppose in my case

it most likely has to do with

my being

a kindy teacher

a creator of mixed-media collage art


a fan of glitter

and i see

that a pattern

has begun to emerge

when family and friends and colleagues

and even my cat

quite often have glitter on them

after spending time with me

and my grandson mentions

that he always finds glitter stuck to him

after we’ve been hanging out together

and people sometimes

brush glitter off of their legs

after getting out of my car


some people leave footprints


some people leave glitter

and that’s how you know

they’ve been there.

“when you’re around me, you’re going to get glitter on you.”
